You lost the oppurtunity to gain.
When you are buying GC's with a 3.5% fee I call that a loss.

Point taken.
Still, a minor loss.  At most, 1.7% to sell, if redeemed probably less, no?

Ein hachi nami, you are right.  Cashing out GC's here is too difficult to me, I stick to other methods with is usually only kdai for thresholds.

Sticking with VR is the simplest. but you can rack up tons of points buying GC

I spent 4800 on the Miles & More mastercard and then stopped, didn't notice for three months.
I remember when a coke was a nickel, and you could buy VRs in OD.
